The Makani guys said that they will give me a t-shirt when I loop.

If you loop, sail with Maui Sails and are willing to wear a blue helmet just for a little while, please send me a PM. Wink

Ok, it's not an issue when it's blowing 30 knots.

Unless you're on a strapless windSUP board and a 3.7, when it's like hitting a floating mattress. ENDO! Very Happy

But it still beats hitting a log.

Really? Send them a pictrure of Silvie carrying a board with their fins in it.
You'll get a shirt. Might be a bit small though.

I guess you're right, Craig, for some reason I never got, she's the star here.

Like when I get here, usually a month before her. The very first thing people say to me is "When is Sylvie coming?". Wish they would say first "hello, Guy".

And guess what I have been answering for the past 3 weeks? "When did Sylvie leave?" Bet you a buck that nobody will notice when I go back home.

Maybe people would notice me more if I had a really cool Makani T-Shirt.

Hey Guy,

I said hi to YOU when I saw you. Then I asked about Sylvie Embarassed But since I haven't seen you in weeks, I just assumed she was gone by now. So how much longer are you hanging around?

Oh, I think you know the reason. If the board sailing population were 80%
female and 20% male, you'd be the star.

And just so you don't feel alone, I'm pretty sure that's what happens to Darren too. ;*)
And you guys both rip!

-Craig

p.s. I definitely think people would buy more Makani fins if you
were sporting a T-shirt (are you listening Makani).

The answer is a retiree's favorite: "I don't know". And our favorite question is: "What day is it?".

By the way, John, thanks for giving me the opportunity to say that I am retired. That's another thing people didn't notice. But I can't blame them for that, never worked that much, so it's hard to see the difference. Wink

The Makani boys must not like you. They gave me a free t-shirt when I bought a bunch of fins from them and then another when I bought the fins for my quad. With ones I've purchased and the freebies I think I own them all now. Ask Wyatt, he was giving me a hard time in PSC because of all my Makani shirts.

BTW, they make a great product. I love running my quad with the twin set up they advised me on..............that should be good for another freebie?

Guess you're right.

I give up, so I'll just stick to my East Coast looser t-shirt.

I'm liking that t-shirt.

Don't worry, if I ever run into you windsurfing, I'll give you the shirt off my back.....I'm usually wearing a Makani T when I go windskippy.
